When I purchased this car back in 2006, I was looking at the Lexus ES300/ES330. I ran across my '03 XLE V6 with every option but nav and it included 4 addtional airbags! The V6 has decent power but the throttle response is my only real complaint. The throttle by wire system is severely lacking when it comes to reponding to my needs. If you can drive around the 2 second lag, you can plan to be a happy, comfortable owner. The interior is quiet and well designed. I thought it was quiet until I added new Micehlin Primacy tires and it is so quiet now that the loudest thing in the cabin is the V6 singing away under acceleration. I love my Camry, styling and comfort of an ES, sans $$$.
Leather interior, awesome, quiet ride. Great 6 dics changer stereo, big backseat.
Get the Throttle by Wire system up to standards. V6 could use another 40 horsepower to be competitive.
